The Contribution of the ICOLD Committee on Computational Aspects of Dam Analysis and Design to the Diffusion of the Knowledge in the Numerical Modelling Process and to the Transfer of Know-How between Generations

Il Comitato Tecnico ICOLD (International Commission on Large Dams) sui “Metodi di calcolo per il progetto e l¿analisi delle dighe” ha sviluppato, a partire dai primi anni ’90 una serie di iniziative (redazione di Bollettini Tecnici e organizzazione di Benchmark-Workshop) il cui scopo è fornire una guida agli ingegneri delle dighe sull¿uso dei programmi e delle metodologie di calcolo. Il Comitato promuove, attraverso le sue iniziative, il trasferimento di know-how tra generazioni e favorisce la comunicazione tra gli specialisti di modellazione matematica e gli operatori del settore (progettisti, gestori degli impianti, autorità di controllo).

In several European areas it can be observed an increasing demand of clean energy and sustainable water supply that is requiring a wide upgrading program of many old dams and, notwithstanding environmental and socio-economic restraints, could presumably involve in the next future the construction of new dams. In the frame of the above-outlined considerations, it is noteworthy mentioning the contribution given by the ICOLD Committee on Computational Aspects of Analysis and Design of Dams to the diffusion of knowledge in the specific field of numerical modelling that is playing more and more a key role in the dam safety assessment of old as well as new dams. The Committee was appointed by ICOLD with the aim to contribute to the diffusion of computer software in the field of dam engineering and to fill the communication gap existing between the specialists of mathematical modelling and designers, planners, and managers of dams. The work done by the Committee during its long activity has given rise to the issuing of two technical Bulletins and to the organization of ten Benchmark-Workshops, with the aim to guide dam engineers towards a correct use of computer programs in the field of dam analysis and design. The benchmarking activity represents a reference for the whole dam community, and in particular for those young engineers engaged in the challenging task of dam safety assessment.
